Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
Dreams, synchronicity, symbols of transformation, and the process of individuation, in general. I believe Jungian/Depth Psychology is an important field and hope to help bridge understanding between academic circles and culture at large. I hope to gain insight from leaders in Depth Psychology, as I try to formulate my own vocational/career path.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
I'm just starting to seek out groups to join. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Jennifer. Happy Easter--and I'd like to add my welcome to Ed's.
I hope as you explore the community you will find a dynamic group of likeminded people who are all deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from many walks of life--artists, writers, doctors, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.

Also, you may want to consider joining the online book club—There's a new author each month, and you can join at anytime and participate at whatever level you wish.The Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, so you can read all the comments that have gone on so far and get a feel for what's happening. April's selection is a great book: "Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism" with Jungian analyst Ken Kimmel.
